The second night of the lawn fete of the Rescue Hose Company last night was more successful than the first night, ami large crowds gathered on (lie grounds.

The grouuds were brightly lighted by ton-lies and lights attached to the trees and ly numerous .Jiijianese lan toTus hung on every convenient branch.. Flowers were in abundance and every table was decorated with a handsome bouquet. The ladies fiittiug about in their dainty summer gowns lent attrac tion to the scene and the music by the ore liestra enlivened the occasion.

The lawn fete over it will he repeated tonight, when it is hoped there will be increased patronage. Everybody should go and help the firemen who so bravely and nobly protect all when the demon fire visits the town. The Sign of The Cross. No dramatic production of the Amer ican stage has ever been so much talk ed about ami recommended by the clergy thau Wilson Barrett’s famous drama “The Sign of The Cross,” which will be seen here for the first time on September (5 at tiie Colonial Theatre. Archbishop Kain, of St. Louis, in writing of this play, said : “I am led to the conclusion that this is a theatrical performance which all may witness, not only with pleasure, but also with- profit. The Sigu of the Cross is a beautiful drama indeed.” In a letter to the manager of “The Sign of The Cross” company recently, Rev. William Taylor Snyder, of Washington, D. C., wrote: “Your plav is a most acceptable antidote to Whv lAm An Agnostic.’ Hundreds will see your play and scores will hear the lecture by the brilliant orator, but few, comparatively, ‘will hear our sermons. To miss seeing this delight ful play is to miss an oveniug of de lightful pleasure.” Congressional Timber. Sonic of the Anne Arundel county delegation to the Congressional con vention are desirons of nominating Mr. .Tamos W. Owens. They say that the nominee must be a man who is iu sympathy with the oyster tongers in the Fifth Congressional district, aud that Mr. Owens iu his catechism of Mr. Hainan when lie was advocat ing his hill before the Legislature did more to prevent the enactment of that bill into law thau any other mau in the state. Therefore they say that Mr. Owens, if nominated, would com mand, aside from the regular party vote, the full vote of the tongers whet Tier they he Democrats or Repub licans, white or colored.

Satisfactory. The regular meeting of the Board of Directors of the Annapolis Water Company was held last night in the rooms of the company’s office, at the Southard Bnildiug, Church Circle. The monthly reports were considered and the regular routine business was transacted. Although it has not been given out officially, it is understood that there was some discussion of the quality . and purity of the city’s water supply. It is said that the water famished An napolis is of the highest order of analysis, and it is known that the water has been recently subjected to careful analysis by experts. Four different sources that supply the city with drinking water have been sub jected to chemical analysis and in all cases the result has been found to be most satisfactory. The water examined was from the larger reservoirs, pumping pool and imjouudiug drain and in every case it was^found to be of the highest order of analysis. The good quality of the Annapolis drinking water is commented favorably ujiou by all visitors and is appreciated by residents after they have returned from Wash iugtou or Philadelphia, and even Bal timore, where the driukiug water is not of the best grade.

Ma. - saciiusetts, who was accidentally drowned yesterday from a steam launch, has not np to the present time, beeu recovered, although divers were employed yesterday in hope of secur ing the body. From what can be as certaiued the young man was in the act of throwing a line to a cotter and lost his balance, and 1b supposed to have been struck by the cutter, as he failed to come to the surface of the water. A midshipman in the launch, on seeing the accident, .immediately jumped overboard after the unfortu nate lad, bat failed to find him. Assistant Rector Arrives. The Rev. W. T.

Governor Warfield was at his desk at 8.30 this morning after having hreak fasteri leisurely and takeu a general survey of the executive buildings and grounds. He was very much amused at reports which reached him from several sources tiiat he had been in jured and finally that he was dead. The Governor said tiiat he never had felt better and that he iiad no idea of any occurrence tiiat gave rise to such a rumor. While here the Governor issued two proclamations for state holidays— Labor Day on the sth of September, and Old Defender’s Day on the 12lh of September. The Governor this morning issued a reprieve for twenty eight days in the caso of Andrew Leouliardt, wiio would nave beeu lianged tomorrow, liuviug beeu con victed and sentenced at tiie May term, 1903, of the Criminal Conrt of Balti more City. The Governor stated his morning tiiat his action today was his first statement as to tiie matter ot a reprieve in this case. United States Senator-elect, Isidor Raynor lias interested hinißelf in this case and wrote a letter to the Gover nor. The only matter, however, which the Governor still considers open is that of the sanity of the man, which has been questioned in several com munications sent to the Governor. This matter will be referred to the State Lunacy Commission. A sister of the man was before the Governor today and begged a commutation in tiie case. Three sentences imposed by William J. Garland, late police justice of Bal timore city, were modified by the Gov ernor today. A pardon was issued to Stephen Matliiey, who on April 24, 1904, was convicted of an assault on Mary A. Taylor and sentenced to three years in jail. Tiie assault took place at the home of the young woman and according to a letter written ny her to the Governor, the facts of the case wore much misunderstood by the justice. These were, she states, tiiat Matliiey and a friend, Michael Price, accosted her and Matliiey placed his hands on her shoulder and attempted to kiss her. She therefore asked the Governor to issue a release in the case, which he has done. William H. Burke, colored, con victed by the same justice of an as sault upon his sister, Elinore Burke, and sentenced to two years in jail, where he lias boon since September 25, 1903, was pardoned. The facts, as verified by the Governor, show that the assault consisted of merely smack ing his sister’s jaws and that the woman was not in the least injured. The Governor also released Thomas E. Elliott* whom Justice Garland on March 30, 1904, sent to the House of Correction for six months on the charge of being au habitually disorder ly character. In the case of fonr young men con victed of riding on tho cars of the Bal timore & Ohio Railroad illegally, the Governor was informed that employ ment awaited them on their release anil believed it better that they should be at work than public charges. They are William Newman, Joseph Calvert, Lewis Martin and Augustus Hartman, and they were convicted by Justice Harry F. Curley, of Carroll comity. They are glass blowers and “rough ing’’ it a little when they committed their offense. A pardon was issued this morning to Benjamin F. Suouffer, couvicted in the Criminal Court of Baltimore City, January term, 1903, of illegal registration and sentenced to eighteen months in the Penitentiary. The sen tence expires tomorrow and the pardon will save his citizenship. Naval Academy Notes. Lieutenant A. H. Scales lias report ed for duty at the Naval Academy. J. W. Rankin, of Connecticut, was today sworn in as a midshipman in the Naval Academy. Tiie battleship Massachusetts left Annapolis Roads yesterday afternoon for New Haven, where it will take on board the Connecticut Naval Re serves for a practice cruise. The Massachusetts will coal on the way at Newport News. All the shiiw of the fleet have gone except the Arkansas and tho Nevada. The Texas, accomjiauied by the tor pedo fleet, sailed this morning. The body of Apprentice Shrade,who was drowned off the U. S. S. Hart ford yesterday morning, lias not beeu found. It is thonght that the tide has carried the body out in the harbor. A Narrow Escape. Mr. George Grath, Manager for the People’s Meat Market, met with a narrow escape from drowning yester day afternooun. Mr. Grath was re turning from a sail when he went to nnstep the mast it slipped, striking him and knocking him backward over board. Mr. Grath fell with his head in the water and his body hanging over the side of the vessel, his limbs being caught below the knees by the falling mast. Mr. Grath was held in this position for a few minutes and would have drowned hot for the time ly assitsauce of Mr. William M. Rnll liian, who went to his relief. Wagon Not Licensed This morning Officer Jacobs stopped oue of the wagons of the Annapolis Transfer Company,Mr. Philip Cooper, proprietor, and the driver thinking he i was about to be arrested, jumped off and ran away*. A warrant was issued i for the arrest of the responsible par ties for not having a license on the ; wagon. The hearing of the case was deferred until a later date, when it l will be heard before Justice Feldmeyer Busy at* Executive Department. This was an extremely busy day at ? the Executive Department. The Gov i ernor, Comptroller and State Treasur er were all here. There was an im l portant meeting of the Board of Pub i lie Works, especially called for the dis ) cussion of the sale of the Chesapeake r and Ohio Canal and advertising for . game. 10 BE FLOWN ON HOLIDAYS. Mayor Jones Will Have The New Flags Flung To The Breeze On Labor Day- Accompanying the handsome set of colors received yesterday by Mayor Jones, as stated in last night’s Capi tal, was the following letter from Seaman T. K. Kurtz,at Helena, Mout : ‘•To the Mayor of Annaitolis. Md. “Sir—l am appoiuted by the officer* and crew of the U. S. S.

A young colored man, presenting a neat appearance, has been making the rounds of various stores attempting to purchase large bills of goods. He went in the store of Mr. Thomas, and Mr. Hayes today. In the former he ordered gloves, ties, canes aud a case of jewelry. In the latter a number of drums and musical toys. When asked to ]y for them he replied “Fry would furnish the money.” The goods were to be sent to Clay street hall, where the colored man said he was going to give a big time to his white friends. It is thought thejpoor fellow who is apparently 22 years old, is “off his trolley.” Enjoyed Crab Feast A party of forty gentlemen enjoyed a crab feast given last night at. the oyster house of Mr. Walter Clark. The host was Mr. T. C. Cooney, at tached to the Naval Academy, aud Mr. John Brooks acted as caterer for him. Delicious crabs were served in every style with “trimmings” aud toasts were drunk to the host, wish ing him bon voyage.

John Wells, William Brown, James Lowmau, Arthur Kuackstedt, French Holidayoke, Richard Holliday, Johu Brooks, Jack Nasou, Dauiel Vansaut aud Dr. Gordon Claude. Everybody enjoyed the feast, which lasted until midnight. The Festive Oyster Here. The gay aud festive oyster arrived as legally announced today, the first “r” mouth. The luscious bivalve is strictly once again “in our midst” at the season was declared formally aud technically opened today. The oyster dealers say there are twice as many oysters this year as there were at this time last year and the outlook is promising. The oysters caught are of far better quality than last year aud bring from 40 to 60 cents per bushel. Today between 30 aud 50 boats went out with oystermen. Mr. Walter Clark,a prominent oyster deal er, has orders for a large shipment of oysters tomorrow, a irt of which will go to St. Louis.
